There are some issues in education. We all know this. The problem is that the only people that have any say in what we do to fix these problems are those that have never spent any time in the classroom. For some reason, the powers that be do not feel that they need the opinions of classroom teachers. Nor do they feel that they need to hear from the most important piece of this puzzle, the students.
This morning on Twitter, Tom Whitby tweeted out a link to the following video. It’s a video of a high school student named Jeff Bliss, expressing his concerns with education as he sees it, from student’s point of view. Although the venue may not be the best one for this type of reaction, his message is spot on.
